The Blue Badge Scheme is designed to help people who are unable to walk, or who are virtually unable to walk, to travel independently, as either a driver or as a passenger, by allowing them to park close to their destination.
Registered blind people and people with very severe upper limb disabilities, who drive a vehicle but cannot turn a steering wheel by hand are also covered by the scheme.
The scheme gives concessions to Blue Badge holders when they park on-street and holders may also benefit from special parking bays. Please note it is Dundee City Council Policy to charge £20 for the issue of Blue Badges.
Important - Scam Information
We have been made aware that another website offering to "assist" with a Blue Badge application is available via a number of major search engines. We have contacted these search engines to highlight this website.
The URL is http:⁄⁄bluebadgeuk.org/blue_badge/apply.php and http:⁄⁄parkingservicesonline.org where a fee of £49 is charged to assist with an application for a Blue Badge.
Please note that this website is not associated with the Blue Badge Service. We are advising any citizens that contact us that applications can be made for free via https://www.gov.uk/apply-blue-badge, or directly to Local Authorities.
